Curras Brothers and their ceramics
- Three color slides. The Curras were twins from Cuba who primarily made tinajones (water jugs). They came to the US in 1981 and learned ceramic making (potting) in Calabasar, near Havana. The Dade Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1986 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalas, Nancy Nusz and Laurie Sommers in order to identify folk arts and folk artists for the special folklife area at the 34th Annual Florida Folk Festival. The traditions are mainly Haitian, Jamaican, Mexican, Bahamian, Cuban and Jewish and cover a wide range of skills and art forms.
